There is no room for pilferage and wastage by accounting officers in government, President Uhuru Kenyatta has said.
The President warned on Wednesday that those found culpable will pay early.
Accounting officers are Principal Secretaries who head state departments; CEOs, Managing Directors, and Directors-General of state-owned enterprises (parastatals); and Vice Chancellors of public universities.
At State House in Nairobi, Uhuru said: “We categorically and clearly state that funny practices that lead to loss or wastage of public resources will not be allowed.
“We will not entertain anybody messing with government resources.”
